Making the Most of Your Agency Internship

alexandra_6-28Nowadays, it seems like just about every entry-level job requires a substantial amount of previous experience. As a college student, the best way to gain experience is to intern. And while internships aren’t always the easiest to obtain, applying for various internships—even ones that might not mirror your dream job or even be in your specific field—is in your best interest. Each internship you pursue gives you the opportunity to further your professional development, explore a potential career path, develop and reinforce skills through real-world experience, and network. Interning specifically at an agency is a unique and invaluable experience. Agencies are fast-paced; you are exposed to a wide range of different verticals, and collectively work with many different departments to support clients.

Take full advantage of any internship opportunity that comes your way, and make the most of your allotted time with the agency. Here is how you do it:

Meet employees in departments other than your own.

During your internship, you will most likely be assigned a specific department to work in. Agencies are home to numerous departments. While the duties for some of these might be similar, each department has a certain specialty. Making an effort to meet employees in other departments opens the door for additional, and critical, professional networking opportunities, giving you the opportunity to explore and experience new types of work, and preform informational interviews.

Ask questions!

Have a genuine interest in the work you do; it is important! Asking questions is the only way you will ever learn. Even if you understand particular directions or concepts, asking why certain things are done the way they are is beneficial. Grasp a better understanding of not only how, but also why things are done the way they are.

Ask for more work.

If you have finished your task list, ask your co-workers if they need any help. Be eager to take on new projects, and learn how to use new types of programs. Experience is the only way you will gain ample experience. You should always look for ways to incorporate new work into your professional portfolio.

Get feedback.

While asking for feedback is often overlooked, it is one of the most important things you can do as an intern. Nobody at your agency is looking to see you fail; everyone wants to help you walk away from this experience a little wiser. Politely asking someone to check over your work and provide you with feedback is both proactive and beneficial. Nobody knows everything their first time. Feedback will only help you!
